Young Innovations acquires Preat Corporation

There will be no interruption to customer service operations, according to the company.

Dental supply company Young Innovations announced its acquisition of Preat Corporation, a leading provider of dental implant components, attachments, and tools. The company made the announcement on November 10 via press release.

"Preat represents an exciting expansion in the implant prosthetic sector with a great track record of growth. This acquisition builds upon our strategy to make it easier for the dentist, periodontist and surgeon to incorporate implants and surgical procedures into their practices," said Dave Sproat, CEO of Young Innovations. "We are excited to support the continued growth of Preat's business, employees, vendors, customers, and brand as a part of our broader global portfolio."

There will be no changes to the service or ordering experience of vendors and customers, the press release read. Chris Bormes will continue in his current role as president of Preat.

"This is an exciting time for the Preat team as well as our industry partners. Young provides an opportunity to supercharge our growth while maintaining the same level of service and exceptional customer experience that our customers have come to count on," Bormes said. "The foundation that Preat was built upon 40 years ago aligns very closely with Young, and our Core Values and commitment to innovation and service won't change. I'm thrilled to lead Preat during this next chapter in our history."
